Did McCain have a medical problem on stage today?

    Can we get a version of that NOT in slow motion?

    You can take slow motion and normal movements, facial expressions can look odd and out of place but in real time they just look like a blink or a number of other normal everyday things.

    Furthermore, he is not the first candidate, or person for that matter, who has gotten "lost" on stage, or better put the first person to forget which side of the stage to exit on.

    So until something else comes from this, a real time show of that look, a report of substance...this just seems like a stretch.

    I guess when you've been tortured there may be some lingering affects.

    Well according to conservatives what they did to McCain wasn't torture, so I don't see why you are complaining.

    Does not look like anything to me.

    We all have occasional eye twitches or facial ticks we don't realize.

    Sometimes it could be just an oddball thing, sometimes it is a reaction to telling the truth or lies, sometimes it could be from a burp, hickup, fart and so on.

    To me that did not look like anything bad.

    It did not stop him from his speech, did not even stop him from finishing the word he was speaking during both times.

    Seems like a stretch to me.

    From that video, the real time one, this does not even have to be something from his torture days.

    Heck I bet everyone in here has had a face tic, muscle movement, an eye flutter/blink without realizing it until after wards and maybe not even realizing it later unless someone shows you. Add in the fact that he is an older gentlemen as well.

    Seems like much to do about nothing.

    I was initially thinking fart...but he did not even pause in the middle of a word let alone sentence.

    I think it was just a normal facial tick (possibly subconscious reasons like he said a lie, was uncomfortable with that part of the speech), an eye flutter or heck maybe his one eye was just a little dry.

    Whatever the reason it did not look like a stroke or something serious.

    That's nothing...just looks like he went the wrong way and was corrected.

    He actually reminded me of my 90 year old grandmother: I was showing her something in my parents bedroom, and when we turned to leave, she kept trying to go out the wrong door.

    Yes, I did. Thank you. I enjoyed it very much, and I've been trying to compose an appropriate response. However, given the way you knocked that sucker out of the park, I've been unable to compose anything remotely comparable.

    Personally, I think you should post the response on this board.

    He should have taken a page from his running mate there and just left it at "I'll have to get back to ya on that one!"
